This drill is a fantastic example of how not every workout you run needs to be fancy. Quite often, the basics plus an element of partner work will make for a session that will get your clients sweating and working hard.
This session was designed by the talented Lyndon Fernandes who operates One More Rep in Dubai. It was part of a collection of drills Lyndon shared on BootCraft earlier in the year when he was featured.
It Gets Harder For Both of Us
Time needed: 37 minutes
Group size: at least 2
Type: Strength, Partner
Equipment needed: None
This is a Partner workout. Boot campers pair up with those of similar fitness levels. One partner works at a time ie. partner A completes reps before partner B can start.
There are 5 stations. Set the timer for 5 minutes per station. There’s a 3 minute rest between stations so you need to make sure they’re working hard.
The Workout is an ascending AMRAP: 2-2, 4-4, 6-6……
Partner A does 2 reps, then Partner B does 2 reps.
Partner A does 4 reps, then Partner B does 4 reps, so on.
Pairs aim to complete as many reps as they can in the 5 minutes.
Use these exercises for your stations or pick your own:
- Jump Squats
- Push Ups
- Side Plank Hip Drop
